Antifa Member Killed By Police After Opening Fire On Officers – VIDEO

USA -(Ammoland.com)- Charles Landeros, 30, was fatally shot in the head by officer Steve Timm at the middle school of his daughter. At the time of the shooting, the leader of the Antifa militant group “Red Arm” and founder of “Community Armed Self-Defense” was at the middle school resisting arrest. Landeros at the time was involved in a custody dispute with his former wife. He was wearing a “smash the patriarchy” shirt at the time of the shooting.

Landeros was not only a leader in the Far-left militant group out of Eugene, Oregon, but he also was the chief firearms instructor for the organizations. The stated mission of the group is to, “defend the oppressed.” Landeros, who identified by non-gender specific pronouns, had a goal to teach and form an armed group to protect members of the LGBTQ+ communities, as well as communities of various cultural backgrounds considered “oppressed”.

The secondary goal of his “Red Army” group was the overthrow of what it sees as a fascist government and the installation of a far-left communist regime in the United States. Landeros has been involved in several violent protests around Oregon protesting things such as perceived police brutality against people of color and people who identify as LGBTQ+.

Landeros recently switched his daughter's middle school. When Landeros's ex-wife found out about the transfer she brought custody paperwork to the school showing she had sole control over their daughter's schooling. When a school official notified Landeros, he was enraged and headed to the school. It is unclear why he changed his daughter's school.

School officials asked Landeros to leave the property when he refused to leave the grounds the school staff called a resource officer. Officer Steve Timm responded to the call and once again requested Landeros to leave immediately or face arrest for trespassing and disorderly conduct. He still refused to leave, so Officer Timm called Officer Aaron Johns for back up. The two officers tried to get Landeros out of the school, but Landeros became combative.

It was at this point where the officers informed the member of Antifa that he was under arrest. Landeros pulled out a 9mm handgun and fired two shots at the officers. Officer Johns tried to wrestle the gun away from Landeros. When the two hit the floor struggling for the firearm Officer Timm fired the fatal shot to the head of Landeros killing him instantly.

Charles Landeros, 30, a member of Antifa, was fatally shot after drawing on police officers arresting him for trespassing on school grounds.

Police released the body cam footage to calm unrest in the Antifa community. The footage seems to show that Officer Timm was left with no choice other than shoot Landeros to protect the other officer. It doesn’t give a clear reason why Landeros would pull his gun and provides evidence that the officers were not overly physical with an individual trespassing on school grounds.

Lane County District Attorney, Patty Perlow, said that the officers acted correctly and that the use of force was justified.

“There was no clearer circumstance that the use of deadly force is justified than this,” Perlow said.

In an unfortunate circumstance, Landeros daughter was in the hallway when Officer Timm was forced to shoot her father. The timing of his daughter walking down the hall appears to be just a coincidence. There would have been no way of Landeros knowing his daughter would be in the hallway, but he did see his daughter before shooting at officers, a fact not lost on the DA.

“It is unknown why Charles Landeros chose to use deadly force in this circumstance, but he clearly had no regard for the lives of the police officers or the students or staff present, including his child,” said Perlow. “Officer Timm saved the life of Officer Johns, himself and perhaps many others given the number of rounds Charles Landeros had loaded in his weapon.”

Landeros also had a backpack full of ammunition of different calibers.

All of which were banned on school property because it was a gun free zone. Landeros must have willfully ignored the gun-free zone or was not aware that the school banned guns.

The FBI also investigated the shooting of Landeros and found that the officers didn't commit any crime and were justified. Landeros was known to the FBI because of anti-government threats posted to the social media. Just days before the shooting he made a post calling for the killing of police officers.

Supporters of Landeros do not believe the shooting was justified. Lauren Regan of the far-left Civil Liberties Defense Center said that their organization would hire outside experts to review the shooting footage. Landeros was of Mexican and Filipino descent. She believes his ethnicity played a role in police deciding to use deadly force.

Based in Eugene, Oregon the Civil Liberties Defense Center is a non-profit law firm. The group has ties to Antifa groups throughout the region. Their mission is ‘to protect the rights of activists and marginalized communities.'

Landeros was an Army vet who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to friends.

Johns has served as an officer since 2001 and Timm has been a member of the department since 2004.

    1. “She believes his ethnicity played a role in police deciding to use deadly force.“ And I believe that the fact that he lived long enough to fire twice and then be in a grappling match, instead of being shot twice by each officer immediately is the effect his ethnicity had on the police officers. I’m pretty sure that had I acted as he did they wouldn’t have tried to disarm me. My white privilege would have been being permitted to bleed out while they decided to call for backup or EMTs.

    2. “GUN FREE ZONE” Who had the GUN illegally on School Property. Thank You Officer Steve Timm for Saving Lives, and ending the life of A Bad Guy.

    3. Every person should place themselves under the authority of the government. There isn’t any authority unless it comes from God, and the authorities that are there have been put in place by God. So anyone who opposes the authority is standing against what God has established. People who take this kind of stand will get punished.
      Romans 13:1-2
      The Lord isn’t slow to keep his promise, as some think of slowness, but he is patient toward you, not wanting anyone to perish but all to change their hearts and lives.
      2 Peter 3:9

      God Bless the brave men serving their country!!

      1. Oh yes, all of the clergy in Russia were told to preach that very same verse to their parishioners as the Commies took control. And the same in Christian Nazi Germany. And now I hear that all the good religious leaders have been given their marching orders here in the Land of the Free and the home of the brave. Please, spare me from that cherry picked religious dogma donkey dust. It is the Devil himself who pushes that brand of bull sh*t.

        1. If the antifa nut had Trusted the Word and given in he’d be alive right now. Our country has not devolved into a fascist government like the USSR or socialists workers party of Germany, there is a day and time but so far the “good” guys really are Good, and the bad guys really are bad.

      2. @Tom M

        There is a difference in the meaning of that bible verse though, and that difference is “Legitimate” authority.

        For example, if ordered to violate your Christian faith and worship a false god, do you comply with that order because it is coming from the government?

        The answer is no. Most of the military is familiar with this type of system though they refer to it as “Chain of Command.” Particularly, in the Christian faith it is that “The laws of God are higher than the laws of men.” This is found directly in Jesus’s teachings in Mark 7:5-13, and Matthew 15:1-9.

        In the same way, the Constitution sits over all of our elected Government, and God above the Constitution. This is the American chain of Command. Just because the Government orders something does not mean it inherently dictates mandatory obedience if such an order is illegitimate or illegal.

        I highly recommend that you study scripture further. The Bible is meant to be taken as a whole, and without a complete understanding of history or scriptural literary background individuals such as yourself push personal opinions instead of what we are actually called to do.

    4. He pulled a gun
      He pulled the trigger
      He became a deadly ongoing threat
      He got shot in the head to stop that threat

      Antifa doesn’t believe shooting him was justified.
      Antifa is a terrorist org. And needs to be dealt with.

      1. I understand your expression but his young daughter might. It was selfish of him/her/whatever he defines as to do this and deprive his/her/whatever child of a parent, no matter how poor a parent they are. The child suffers.

      1. I lived went to college, and owned a home in Springfield…..My daughter graduated from Thurston with honors….This was before the idiots (Anitfa) were even thought about….What a terrorist group, which should ALL be destroyed forever !!

        1. Antifa started in Europe in the 1930’s. Some people think that Soros brought them over here to cause trouble. BTW, rumor has it that Soros has been arrested and is facing a military tribunal.

    5. I would like to know exactly when the first time he was notified that he was under arrest. Was it during the time before this particular video began, or was it when he was already thru the doors and outside ?

      1. Who gaf? The asshole pulled out a handgun on two police officers in a school with the students present, including his own daughter and fired two shots,
        What exactly is wrong with you liberal fools? Thank God no one else was injured by this idiots actions!

      2. From the video it seems he was asked to leave and refused. At this point the officer had a duty to detain and arrest. Landeros obviously didn’t want to be arrested and resisted by fighting, not sure if he headed for the door or the officer move him that way but one thing is certain, Landeros could have killed alot of people had it not ended up outside and could himself still be alive had he not pulled a gun AND his daughter would still have a father that could get some help.

        1. Without knowing what happened BEFORE the video started, it appears as if the Alleged Antifa Guy (AAG)was explaining to the LEO that no school officials had asked him to leave, and then proceeded to leave as he finished his sentence. At least, that is what it appears he was doing from watching the video. It was at that time that the LEO began physically assaulting the AAG, and then in the middle of the scuffle he says “you are under arrest”. Usually, a LEO will first inform you that you are under arrest before he will lay a hand on you, and inform you of what the charges are. And another question I have about the incident is that his partner was giving him the “let’s beat the shit out of this guy” signal, as he used his rolled up papers to hit his own legs with, which is well known unspoken code. And on top of that, he allowed the AAG to stand there with his hand in his pocket, which we all know now had a handgun in it. Most LEO’s will ask you to take your hands out of your pockets when they are talking to you, and will ask you if you have any weapons or sharps in your pockets before they pat you down, AFTER THEY INFORM YOU THAT YOU ARE UNDER ARREST. So, the question remains, when was the first time that the LEO informed the AAG that he was under arrest ? Was it before the video started ? Which, if it was then the LEO would be totally exonerated. But if it wasn’t, then you just go sit down somewhere and think about it.

          1. He was trespassing on the school grounds, so he needed to stand still while the officers talked to him about it. They may have let him go with a warning. But, no, he wasn’t going to have that.

            When I have entered a school building while school is in session, there has been a sign directing all visitors to check in at the office. I doubt that they would have allowed him to go in to visit his daughter. Fathers have pulled that one before with bad results. And that is why there are police in schools.

            (When I was in school, I never saw a police officer in the school. But that was some time ago.)
